Toys for Tots

IMG_8110In December, P.S./I.S. 78Q Student Council coordinated a community service project at school with Toys For Tots. Toys for Tots is an initiative designed to collect and distribute toys to underprivileged children in our city. The children collected new and unwrapped toys donated from the families and children of P.S./I.S. 78Q. Students and families were encouraged to deposit all donations in boxes located in the lobby of each school building.

“It is an important teachable moment for children, when they are able to think of ways to help others. I hope this Holiday Season brings happiness to all families in our city.” said Mr. Louis Pavone, Principal of P.S./I.S. 78Q. The program was a success and they collected over 10 large bags of new toys for children in need. Way to go P.S./I.S. 78Q School Community!IMG_8109
